- MoMA remembers that there are Latin American artists other than Kahlo and Rivera (and Armando Reverón.) And not a moment too soon: cuz a bunch of Chilean journalists were just asking Glenn Lowry about the museum’s Latin American holdings.
- The Detroit Institute of Arts gets gussied up. Here’s what the locals have to say about it.
- Please don’t hump the art.
- A casting suggestion for ArtStar: Get a street artist. Preferably a rather unhinged one that’s all twitchy-like from inhaling so much spray paint.
- Félix González-Torres’s installation at Harvard’s Carpenter Center makes damn fine eatin’.
- Media World Smackdown: Business Week’s Jon Fine does an atomic knee drop on the NY Times’s David Brooks. Take that, Institutional Media. (Via MediaBistro.)
- Last week’s art-in-the-trash find: Goicolea. This week’s art-in-the-trash find: Arbus.
- From the Department of Artistic Evolution: Literally. (Via Hustler of Culture.)
- Damien Hirst: When art imitates The X-Files.
- If only Giuliani would take up photography.

- Your moment of dada: Kansas-style.
